Montage Monday:) A Week In A Peek

11 Sep

“Mondays are not for the faint of heart, so start the day with a deep breath and a big smile. Or go back to bed.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


We’ve gone from a severe drought to…I’m fixin’ to build the ark in the back yard and gather the animals two by two. Lots of rain every day.

More fun, food and friends this week. I’ve been walking pretty much every day, but an umbrella has been my constant companion. I’m not complaining…well, maybe a little, but the rain has been a welcome gift, but, enough is enough.

You know that song, “Rainy days and Monday’s always get me down?” Not me. I love rainy days and Mondays.

“Life is like a basketball team. It takes a lot of practice, coaching, teamwork, and sometimes sweat and suffering. You just have to keep dribbling down the court and keep aiming for the basket.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis (I coached 7th grade girl’s basketball once upon a time.)


Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.”

~Mattie Stepanek


Every Monday, when I look back at my week’s worth of photos, it’s like reliving each day and smiling at the wonderful events and people that have blessed my life. I put together a little montage, using a dozen or so of my favorite pictures and quotes. That’s a tough task. I usually take a zillion pictures every week. Well, maybe not a zillion, but maybe a million or two. Ha!

This week, I did a lot of baking, visiting with friends, a few lunches, a couple of dinners, a few margaritas, visiting cute firemen, dancing at the senior center, singing at the VFW, painting, well, the list goes on.

This is my life…isn’t it grand?

Another week of lucky pennies, crazy good Chicago pizza and Mexican food, beautiful sunsets, friends, family, and faith. What more could you ask for? Counting my blessings!

“Never be so busy as not to think of others.” ― Mother Teresa


Another wonderful week.  But, then again, when isn’t it wonderful? Well, maybe those wasted 3 1/2 hours sitting at the Social Security Office. A birthday party for a friend, painting, a free concert, won a fabulous raffle prize, karaoke every Thursday, went to court just for fun, friends, and family. That’s what it’s all about.

“You can find poetry in your everyday life, your memory, in what people say on the bus, in the news, or just what’s in your heart. ”

~Carol Ann Duffy


Another great week. Time with friends, beautiful sunsets, Baby Belle pictures, and my amazing CRHP retreat at St. Gabriel’s this weekend. A fine fun-filled week with a side order of soul searching.

Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.

~ Michael J. Fox***************

A busy, crazy, beautiful, exhausting, magnificent week in a peek. The highlight was Mom’s 90th birthday on Tuesday and her big party on Saturday afternoon. A wonderful week. A big thank you to all the family and friends who made it so special.

“The most beautiful moments always seemed to accelerate and slip beyond one’s grasp just when you want to hold onto them for as long as possible.” ― E.A. Bucchianeri


 The end of an old year, the beginning of a new year. More memories, more blessings. A week in a peek.

“An enlightened person strives to live a meaningful life, defined by their personal humility joy, passion, and profound reverence for life.” 

― Kilroy J. Oldster


This was a fine week with fine weather with a Thanksgiving holiday wrapped around it. McKinney had their annual holiday festival on the square this weekend, and I spent time with good friends, shared good food, and had a good week. I sure hope you did too.

Montage Monday and Memorial Day

31 May

“Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.”
~Martin Luther


Memorial Day, a day to give thanks to all who have served and sacrificed. I always think of my own father, and all the other fathers, sons, brothers, sisters, daughters, and mothers who served their country. We are indebted to them all. 

My father, Elijah Armenta. Gone but not forgotten. 

A week in a peek. 

Unpacking, storms, brownies, walking, phone calls and friends. A good week.

“Procrastination gives me a little extra time to make a list of the things that I’m not going to get done tomorrow.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


I would say it was a busy week, but it wasn’t really. It was a fun week. I’ve been checking off a lot of “firsts” and “bucket list” events on my life calendar these past few months. I was invited to the Fort Worth Rodeo this week, that was a first. Very cool, a very Texas thing to do.

Now, I need to get productive and get some things done around the house. Or, maybe I’ll just make a list and think about it tomorrow.

Here’s a week in a peek…
